quotes from http://www.christmas-quotes.com/
What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.
--Ralph Waldo Emerson
`Why, it isn't possible,' said Scrooge, `that I can have slept through a whole day and far into another night. It isn't possible that anything has happened to the sun, and this is twelve at noon.'
-- Charles Dickens "A Christmas Carol"
Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first. The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant the pouring into a sick world of the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years... Underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart.
--George Mathhew Adams
There is no ideal Christmas; only the one Christmas you decide to make as a reflection of your values, desires, affections, traditions.
--Bill McKibben, Author, Hundred Dollar Holiday: The Case For a More Joyful Christmas
What do you call people who are afraid of Santa Claus? Claustrophobic.
Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
--Norman Vincent Peale
Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.
--Mary Ellen Chase
Time was with most of us, when Christmas Day, encircling all our limited world like a magic ring, left nothing out for us to miss or seek; bound together all our home enjoyments, affections, and hopes; grouped everything and everyone round the Christmas fire, and make the little picture shining in our bright young eyes, complete.
